Newcastle United twice came from behind to deny relegation-threatened West Ham a second consecutive Premier League victory for the first time since August.
The Hammers took the lead for the second time when Tomas Soucek fired in from close range, but the Magpies drew level just 92 seconds later through Jonjo Shelvey.
Buoyed by their recent victory over Chelsea, the Hammers started brightly and took an early lead at St James’ Park when Michail Antonio pounced on Jamaal Lascelles’ loose touch to open the scoring.
The hosts responded well and drew level when Miguel Almiron converted Emil Krafth’s low cross from close range.
Substitute Andriy Yarmolenko – whose goal sealed victory over the Blues on Wednesday – came closest to finding another late winner, but his stinging strike was well kept out by Martin Dubravka.
The draw ensures West Ham remain 16th in the table after ending their run of seven consecutive away defeats in the top flight, while Newcastle stay 12th.
